Summaries for CXCL9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CXCL9 Gene

  • This antimicrobial gene encodes a protein thought to be involved in T cell trafficking. The encoded protein binds to C-X-C motif chemokine 3 and is a chemoattractant for lymphocytes but not for neutrophils. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

GeneCards Summary for CXCL9 Gene

CXCL9 (C-X-C Motif Chemokine Ligand 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CXCL9 include Inclusion Body Myositis and Sydenham's Chorea. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and CXCR3 chemokine receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is CXCL10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CXCL9 Gene

  • Cytokine that affects the growth, movement, or activation state of cells that participate in immune and inflammatory response. Chemotactic for activated T-cells. Binds to CXCR3.
